2017 Week 17 vs ARI (10 / 48 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Davis was rock solid but after only his second carry, left the game with an injury for a short while, so his touches were slightly limited. He returned in the second half and looked great finding small gaps in the blocking ahead of him, as well as being relied on as an outlet in the short passing game. Davis has made a case for being on some team's roster next year - whether in Seattle or somewhere else -- and given the ground game woes the Seahawks have had this year, it's anyone's guess what the hierarchy will look like in 2018.
2017 Week 16 vs DAL (15 / 25 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 18 / 0 rec)
Davis is still the lead back, as evidenced by his getting the lion's share of the carries. Early on, he looked great busting through the middle and was used often as a receiver on short, check down type routes. Overall, however, Davis had a very poor day - the O-line alternated between opening holes and giving up negative yardage; not a good recipe for any ground game.
2017 Week 15 vs LAR (6 / 19 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
If there was a bright spot - I say, "IF" - it was Mike Davis. The game plan went out the window pretty quickly, but early in the game when the Seahawks were still running the ball, Davis ran strong up the middle, and seemed to be building momentum. He also contributed as a receiver, making a big play on a screen pass, similar to one he capitalized on last week. In the second half, down 34-0, the Seahawks all but abandoned the run game, and J.D. McKissic started taking more snaps in the backfield.
2017 Week 14 vs JAX (15 / 66 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / -1 / 0 rec)
Davis had sealed up the starting gig by the time he got injured in the 3rd quarter. By then, it seems they decided to hold him out just in case, while the Seahawks played catch up Davis is expected to play in next week's game, however. He had a couple of runs worth noting - showing excellent vision, cut back move, and ability to shed tackles past scrimmage. Davis other noteworthy accomplishment is his continued use as a check down option in the passing game, though it won't show up on the scoresheet. He took a screen pass for a big gain, that unfortunately came back on a penalty, and seems to have gained his team and quarterback's trust in that department.
2017 Week 13 vs PHI (16 / 64 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 37 / 0 rec)
Davis just ran away with the lead back duties in Seattle. He was inconsistent but showed enough game that he got 16 carries, while the other three backs on the roster had one each. He had a lot of trouble gaining yards up the middle against a stout D, including a goal line leap that got stuffed, but he proved himself versatile enough to be effective running outside and as a pass catcher - at least on short routes. Much of his damage came on an off tackle run for 22 yards, in which he found some room to run and made at least four defenders miss. It was downright Marshawn Lynch-ian. Davis also looked dangerous after the catch on multiple short catches, and added to the highlight reel after taking a lateral from Russell Wilson for a first down. The only caveat here is that his play did not magically improve the offensive line. While Davis is light years better of a fantasy option than Eddie Lacy or Thomas Rawls right now, his upside is still limited.
2017 Week 11 vs ATL (6 / 18 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 41 / 0 rec)
Davis was brought up off the practice squad and promptly played a large role in the running game, while Thomas Rawls was a healthy scratch. Davis looked at least as good running as Chris Carson did before he got injured, and it was beginning to look like the Seahawks might have found a ground game. Davis also contributed as a receiver, adding 41 yards on two screen plays. Unfortunately, he left the game in the third quarter due to a groin injury. Before the injury, Davis's power running was making a clear case for a start next week as well.
